local ministries

We are involved in our local community in a number of ways. See some of them below to find out more.

Watered Gardens

First Baptist Church of Webb City pairs with Watered Gardens to engage with the area homeless and poor relationally, responsibly, and compassionately.

We volunteer the first Saturday of each month. Please inquire through our office if you would like to serve.

Isaiah 58:11

The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.



First Baptist Church of Webb City joins Crosslines Churches of the Joplin Area with the mission of "Concerned volunteers working together across denominational lines to meet human needs in the name of Jesus." We are a part of the more than 60 supporting churches, over 200 volunteers, and 9 part-time staff members celebrating 35 years of service to the Joplin, Carl Junction and Webb City communities. We are looking forward to many more years of "Serving God's people in need through church and community partnerships."

We volunteer every third Wednesday of the month. Please inquire through our office if you are interested in serving.


Webb City cares

FBC Webb City is a partner organization with Webb City CARES (Community And Resources Embracing Schools). Webb City CARES provides a bridge between the community and local resources with Webb City R-VII School District surrounding our students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and thereby paving the road to a better tomorrow.

We are a partner for the Webb City Junior High School.

Through our partnership, we help the students of Webb City School district with various material needs and provide a positive presence. 

There are many ways you can get involved. Donations are needed of various kinds. Help through serving in various programs is also needed. 

Please inquire through our office if you are interested in serving through this program.
